A Whimsical Celestial Creation. He has a peaceful spirit. He loves his place in the Solar System and encourages Loving thoughts. He believes that our thoughts are what we are. To be loving, forgiving and accepting are always in his intentions.

I carved him out of Quilted Big Leaf Maple.This piece is very tight grain. It is really amazing to look at! I cut him out with a jig saw and ruffed him out with an angle grinder using a carbide kutzall type disc cutter. This is the link to the cutter that I use: http://www.woodcarverssupply.com/4-EX-COARSE-TAPER-WHEEL/productinfo/259891
I have glued a work glove onto the angle grinder so that it won’t jump out of my hand while carving. I used a Dremel for most of the carving.
He measures 19 1/2” tall by 8 3/4” wide by 1 1/4” thick
